She's fae. He's human. He should never have followed her into the magic realm…

Violet has one job: protect humans from dangerous magical creatures. It's a job she's good at—until the cute human guy whose life she just saved follows her into the fae world.

Now she's broken faerie law, risking her future at the Guild of Guardians. She needs to get Nate home and make him forget everything he's discovered.

If only someone wasn't intent on hunting him down.

Vi and Nate are pulled into the darker side of the fae world, where deadly magic and long-forgotten secrets exist.

Vi might be one of the best, but can she get them out alive?

Jamsu and I had to much fun during our Vampire Academy/Bloodlines buddy read, that we decided to continue knocking off a few books from our TBRs that we had in common. So we picked The Faerie Guardian and let me tell you, I had a ton of fun.

I've had The Faerie Guardian on my TBR for way longer than I am willing to admit. I've always had a thing for faerie stories, and let's face it: there can never be too many stories about them, just like with vampires. Anyway.

In this book we are introduced to Violet, a Guardian-in-training, who does something bad. In all honesty, it's not her fault, but she still gets blamed for one of her assignments not ending the way it was supposed to end. I liked Violet. She's been through some stuff growing up, having lost both her parents at an early age. They were both Guardians, and I think she feels a need to follow in their footsteps and honor their memory, so she signed up to become a Guardian as well.

I wasn't very fond of Nate from the beginning. I did like the fact that Violet had someone in her corner, aside from her mentor, but I just wished her love interest would have been a bit more genuine in a way. For some reason Nate didn't feel like someone worthy of her, but I'll let you guys decide if I'm right or wrong. He has some mystery surrounding him, and the reader discovers it as the story develops, just like Violet does, and I am definitely curious to see how his story will continue in the next books.

I found this book a bit predictable, but that didn't keep me from enjoying the story. I an very curious to see what will happen next in this world. I also love that the series seems to be broken into groups of books that focus on a set of characters, so even though there are currently 9 books, they don't all focus on the same main characters, which I adore. So I'll definitely check out the rest of the series.

All in all, this was a pretty good series starter, and I can't wait to read more about this world. As always, please remember to visit Jamsu's blog and read her review for The Faerie Guardian.
